I have had this short post written to be available when  I needed a quick Wellness Wednesday post and since I came home today feeling nasty. Cold or Flu coming? Not sure, feels almost like both and it is 7pm Tuesday night and I just want to sleep! So-I am posting this.

No-not real fancy, but your Organs will thank you and although a true diet doesn’t spend all its energy keeping you away from all fats, it just allows you to make better choice, so here is the Skinny on Fats!

The Bad Fats
Saturated Fats
Cheese/dairy from non-reduced milk
Palm & palm kernal oil
Coconut oil
Processed/Fatty Lamb, beef, pork, chicken and with their skin
Creams (Whip Cream)
Trans Fats
Fried/Battered foods
Baked goods: Pies, Cookies, etc…
Margarine (sticks)
Non-dairy creamers
Microwave popcorn
Frozen/Creamy Drinks & Frozen Dinners
Canned Chili
Beef Sticks
Want a fascinating article I found on the Restaraunt favorite dishes that have more Trans Fats than a cheeseburger? This may just bum you out as it did me… 
The Good Fats
Monosaturated Fats
Olive Oil
Canola Oil (make sure it is Organic or else you are using a GMO product!)
Natural Peanut Butter
Sunflower & sesame seeds
Polyunsaturated Fats
Soybean/Corn Oil (again organic or non-GMO labeled)
Safflower Oil
Flax Seed
Almond Butter
Why do I mention Non-GMO? Oh! My! Let me tell you why in my previous article:

  1. Well, in the bad fats, I don't think it's fair to lump baked goods in there… you can make baked goods at home with good fats :)! Store is pretty iffy, though. Only more natural brands have products without a bunch of junk in them.

  2. we're trying to avoid unhealthy food and minimize our calories, sugar and fatty intake these days and so far we've lost lbs. hubby lost 12 lbs and i lost 5 lbs for the first 2 weeks

  3. This is awesome. So many people do not understand you NEED healthy fats in your diet and what the UNHEALTHY ones are! Thanks!

  4. Great post!! this is so me!1 I used to weigh 250 lbs in 2000. I'm now at 160. It was hard work but worth it. I love how this was a little incentive to you for feeling a little lousy, but I thank you with all I have for this great post. We need these things in our lives to keep us healthy. I need to have a little awareness now & then, this one worked for me!!

  5. we have all but stopped going out to dinner. i am guilty of ordering my favorite chinese 1x/month, but they are a small family restaurant that uses natural and (mostly) healthy fats. this was quite informative, especially for those that really do not know what they put in their mouths! thanks 🙂

  6. I need to send this post to my mom. She is trying to change her diet and gets so confused about what is good and what is bad. Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from #thursdaythrowbacklinkup

  7. Oh man…I sure do need to pay better attention to what I am eating! I need it to be Wellness Wednesday everyday!! Thanks for sharing – I'm saving this list to refer to often! Stopping by {late} from #throwbackthursdaylinkup
